Church-Wide Weekly Memory Verse Program
Why Memorize the Bible?
For many reasons! Here are a few. It is one of the most effective ways to “meditate” on the Word of God “day and night” (Joshua 1:8); to treasure it in our hearts that we might not sin against the Lord (Psalm 119:11); and to meditate on the Lord in the “night watches” (Psalm 63:6) so that we can regard all his ways (Psalm 119:15). Since “faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God” (Romans 10:17), the memorized Word helps us in evangelism making the Word of truth readily available to build our own and others’ faiths. It works on our hearts to cultivate Christ-like character. It helps us to resist temptation, and enhances prayer and worship.
Why Memorize the Bible Together, Church-Wide?
Everyone needs to be armed with the Word of God. Memorizing together adds accountability and encouragement.
